Humans are deeply influenced by their environment.

Making a conscious choice to dwell in a healthy, creative space empowers people to flourish.

Wolfson Earth artisans utilize all natural building, sculpting, and finishing products to transform interiors, structures, and gardens into reflections of the inhabitants’ lives, hopes, and needs.  Artisans arrange natural building materials into vibrant fixtures of form, color, and texture that are each unique in design and function.

We specialize in clay based building systems and materials: fine clay plasters and paints, cob mixes, and straw-clay and straw bale enclosures. Textures and depths created with clay plasters offer an unusually warm elegance that transform spaces into unique places.  We are enamored with clay’s unsurpassed simple sophistication.

Wolfson Earth Plasters, Paints, and Wall coverings are custom made per project with naturally abundant materials.  Our wall finishes do not emit VOCs found in conventional paints, glues, and plasters.  Installation is safe and enjoyable for applicators and inhabitants.

Natural Building Workshops: Educational and experiential workshops and seminars on natural building technologies help re-introduce traditional building techniques to the Chicago area.  Contact us about leading a workshop for your organization, community, or family.
